Often in scripture, when the Lord moves in a fresh way it requires working differently. One of the first things He asked us to do was begin reaching out to the neighborhood by opening up a time and ministry on our porch.
The Lord also began to redirect the ministry. We were to change from being a traditional mission agency to becoming more of a rapid response team. That meant we had to release our missionaries so both we and they would be more effective in the coming move of God.
